Color Dare #285--Blossom, Bashful and Silver Option

This week's Color My Heart Color Dare challenge features the Close to My Heart colors Blossom and Bashful with an option of Silver.  Feel free to add White Daisy and Black but please don't add any new colors.  Of course if you don't have these CTMH colors yet you may substitute similar colors so you can still join in on the fun.

What fun it was to play with Silver Metallic Foil!  Although it looks like black in this first photo it is very shiny and pretty.  The teapot is from the Flower Market cricut cartridge and the heart border die is from Close to My Heart.  There are two heart border dies in this set and I used the cutout hearts as accents above the teapot.  My card layout was inspired by a sketch in Make it From Your Heart Volume 4. The background paper is from Adventure Paper Fundamentals over Blossom card stock.  The teapot base and accent strip are Bashful card stock. I deliberately left a sentiment off this card to save for a later date.

Here is another view so you can see how shiny the bottom heart border is.  The outline of the teapot is also Silver Metallic but just didn't photograph well.

  1. So pretty! I love the teapot and your silver hearts.

  2. Great card, Marie! I love how you used the cut outs for the heart border. The teapot in silver is great too!

  3. Like how you used the silver hearts on the background paper as well, and the silver metallic teapot against the background looks great. Although the silver comes out black in the photo, even if you used just black paper the contrast is there. Very pretty card.

  4. I love the use of the silver foil instead of glitter. Foil is SO hard to photograph... (I feel your pain with this!) The tiny hearts are such a cool addition. Gorgeous card :)

  5. Such a pretty card!!
    Thank you so much for entering our ATG challenge at Through The Craft Room Door this week. Looking forward to see you again next challenge.
